An Examination of the Sex Bias of Student Teachers.
Alden, Elaine; And Others.
In an effort to determine the extent of sex bias and sex-role stereotyping in the attitudes and awareness of student teachers, a 50-item questionnaire was developed and tested. Five general areas of sex bias were investigated: (l) career and the world of work; (2) family and home management; (3) education; (4) sports and health; and (5) male/female relationships. One hundred thirty-nine Southern Illinois University (Carbondale) students enrolled in l977 student teaching completed the questionnaire. Interpretation of responses indicated that male subjects' response patterns were more supportive of stereotyped sex roles than were females' responses and that secondary education teacher trainees exhibited greater sex stereotyping than elementary education teacher trainees. A third comparison, between the scores of whites and nonwhites, was inconclusive due to the small sample size for nonwhites (6 out of l39). (MJB)
